Culturally Responsive Caring and Expectations for Academic Achievement in a Catholic School
Dallavis, Christian
Journal of Catholic Education, v17 n2 p154-171 Apr 2014
This article draws from a larger dissertation study that applied ethnographic and historical research methods to explore the intersection of culturally responsive pedagogy and Catholic schooling in immigrant communities. In particular, this article presents qualitative data analysis to describe student achievement expectations at a contemporary urban Catholic elementary school. By examining teacher, student, and parent perspectives on academic achievement, the article explores the degree to which the caring demonstrated at the school is/is not consistent with a notion of "culturally responsive caring" in the scholarly literature surrounding theories of culturally responsive pedagogy.
